Twisted Metal Release Date Is Valentine's Day

Twisted Metal director David Jaffe revealed the game's new release date today. The vehicle combat game will debut on the PS3 on Valentine's Day - February 14th - in North America.

"It's a very romantic game," Jaffe said in a video address to fans. "I predict people will come home from their romantic dinners, and play the crap out of local split-screen."

PlayStation.Blog in Europe confirmed that the European launch of the game will occur around the same time.

"You may have seen the Twisted Metal announcement on @PlayStation. We can confirm TM is also coming to Europe next February, exact date TBC," tweeted PlayStation Blog EU.

Twisted Metal was originally scheduled to arrive this fall. Jaffe announced a delay to the game a couple weeks back.

"Thing is, you gotta trust me when I tell you that – with this extra time for tuning and polish – the game is going to be so much better than it already is," said Jaffe at the time.
